CROWN POINT - A community yard sale and a talent show have been added to the First Congregational Church of Crown Point Strawberry Festival.
The sixth annual event will be held Sunday, June 27, beginning at 9:30 a.m. in Hammond Park adjacent to the church.
Hannah Shively, a story teller and dramatist, will start the program.
"Hannah will share timely messages to encourage and strengthen each person's resolve to walk a closer walk of faith," Pastor David Hirtle said. "This presentation is appropriate for all ages. A free-will offering will be taken."
The community yard sale is open to all Crown Point area residents and vendors.
"The Strawberry Festival will be expanded this year to include an open invitation to all community members and vendors to set-up a community yard sale in the park," Hirtle said. "This year there will be no charge to come, set up a table and sell/barter away those timeless trinkets that have languished in the basement and attic of your home."
People who plan to take part are asked to call 597-3520 to reserve space.
"The church is also pleased to announce that once again, back by popular demand, the Praise Choir from the Ticonderoga Assembly of God Church located on Water Street, will be sharing their considerable vocal and instrumental talent," Hirtle said.
The Strawberry Festival will also feature a talent show.
"The church is also announcing an 'open mic' for those who would like to share their family-rated talent with the community during the Strawberry Festival," Hirtle said.
Those wishing to perform are asked to call Hirtle at 597-3398.
At noon hot dogs, sausages, strawberry shortcakes and chocolate-covered strawberries will be served.
All proceeds from the festival will be used for programs and missions sponsored by the Congregational Church of Crown Point.
